Beauty of the nature lies in viewer’s eyes. A photograph is just a way to show or represent that beauty. Here is a bunch of some wonderful pictures which are not only the example of beautiful photography but are also a photograph of some miracles happening in the world. You can also call it the creativity and innovation of photographer’s mind. I think it was at the peak while taking these pictures. Some photographs are just the example of wonder created by God.
Some are really very cute and heart touching. Some are the scenes which go thorough our are eyes almost everyday but we do not see them with the way these photographs want us to show.
I am simply in love with these photographs and I am sure you will too. Here are also some scenes which you might not get to see in your life ever.
Gibraltar Airport is one of the most extraordinary airports around the world.
Morning Glory – kind of clouds observed in the Gulf of Carpentaria in northern Australia.
The river above the river: Magdeburg Water Bridge, Germany.
Heavy fog in Sydney, which enveloped the whole city.
Skyscraper-Crescent Crescent Moon Tower (Dubai).
Photo of storm in Montana, USA, 2010.
Lighthouse guard in Mare, France must be one of the most courageous people on the planet!
Airport in the Maldives is located on an artificial island in the middle of the Indian Ocean.
In northwestern Montana, USA. The water is so transparent that it seems that this is a quite shallow lake. In fact, it’s very deep.
This is a unique geological phenomenon known as Danxia landform. These phenomena can be observed in several places in China. This example is located in Zhangye, Province of Gansu. The color is the result of an accumulation for millions of years of red sandstone and other rocks.
View of the sunset from inside the wave.
From the outside it looks like.
Balcony of floor 103 in Chicago.
Lost paradise in the Indian Ocean. Isle of Lamu.
Favelas of Brazil. The boundary between wealth and poverty.
Banpo Bridge in Seoul, South Korea.
Haus Rizzi - Germany.
In the city of Buford (USA) lives just one person. He works as a janitor and as a mayor.
Marcus Levine – slaughtering an artist in the literal sense. He creates his paintings by nailing a white wooden panel. At his latest series of paintings exhibited in a gallery in London, Marcus has spent more than 50 000 pieces of iron.
Paris computer games store. In fact, the floor is absolutely flat.
The longest traffic jam in the world recorded in China. Its length is 260 kilometers.
This statue, created by Bruno Catalano, is located in France.
An unusual tunnel in California’s Sequoia National Park.
Day and night. The monument in Kaunas, Lithuania.
In the Chinese province of Shandong is a bridge across the Gulf of Jiaozhou. The bridge length over 36 km is calculated for eight car lanes, and is the longest sea bridge in the world.
In the resort town of Skagen you can watch an amazing natural phenomenon. This city is the northernmost point of Denmark, where the Baltic and North Seas meet. The two opposing tides in this place can not merge because they have different densities.
Twice a year in the Gulf of Mexico rays migrate. About 10 thousand stingrays swim from the Yucatan Peninsula to Florida in the spring and back in the fall.
The border between Belgium and the Netherlands in a cafe.
These trees grow in the forest near Gryfino, Poland. The cause of the curvature is unknown.
And this is the view down.
Dubai. The view from the skyscraper BurjKhalifa. The height of buildings is 828 m (163 floors).
Balloons in Cappadocia.
Desert with Phacelia (Scorpion Weed). Flowering once in several years.
Office of Selgas Cano in Madrid.
Restaurant on a cliff on the east coast of Zanzibar. Depending on the tide the restaurant can be reached both on foot and by boat.
Emerald Lake in the crater of an extinct volcano. Tongariro National Park – NewZealand.
Thor’s Well – “the gates of the dungeon.” CapePerpetua, Oregon. At moderate tide and strong surf, flowing water creates a fantastic landscape.
The world’s highest chained carousel, located in Vienna, the height of 117 meters.
This one’s kinda hard to swallow so take a deep breath, open your minds, and pretend it’s 2100. I CONTACT is essentially a mouse fitted to your eyeball. The lens is inserted like any other normal contact lens except it’s laced with sensors to track eye movement, relaying that position to a receiver connected to your computer. Theoretically that should give you full control over a mouse cursor. I’d imagine holding a blink correlates to mouse clicks.
The idea was originally created for people with disabilities but anyone could use it. Those of us too lazy to use a mouse now have a free hand to do whatever it is people do when they sit at the computer for endless hours. I love the idea but there is a caveat. How is the lens powered? Perhaps in the future, electrical power can be harnessed from the human body, just not in a Matrix creepy-like way.

Although it would be impossible to do this on earth, you actually could do this on themoon. The moon has a cold core and it also doesn’t have any oceans or groundwater to mess things up. In addition, the moon has no atmosphere, so the tunnel would have a nice vacuum in it that eliminates aerodynamic drag.
So, imagine that the tunnel through the moon is 20 feet (7 meters) in diameter. Down one side is a ladder. If you were to climb down the ladder, what you would find is that your weight decreases. Gravityis caused by objects attracting one another with their mass. As you descend into the tunnel, more and more of the moon’s mass is above you, so it attracts you upward. Once you climbed down to the center of the moon you would be weightless. The mass of the moon is all around you and attracting you equally, so it all cancels out and you would feel weightless.
If you were to actually leap into the tunnel and allow yourself to fall, you would accelerate toward the center to a very high speed. Then you would zoom through the center and start decelerating. You would eventually stop when you reached the tunnel’s lip on the other side of the moon, and then you would start falling back down the tunnel in the other direction. You would oscillate back and forth like this forever.
If you could do this on earth, one amazing effect would be the ease of travel. The diameter of the earth is about 12,700 kilometers (7,800 miles). If you drilled the tunnel straight through the center and could create a vacuum inside, anything you dropped into the tunnel would reach the other side of the planet in just 42 minutes!
